Lydia Guevara (Che Guevara's grandaugher) and PETA

From PETA:

¡Viva la Vegolución! Guevara's Granddaughter Stars in New PETA Ad

"The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall."
—Che Guevara

Well, it looks like the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Che Guevara's granddaughter, Lydia Guevara, is following in her revolutionary granddad's footsteps by calling for a "vegetarian revolution."

"PETA's fight for animals was one of the reasons why I went vegetarian," Lydia told the Spanish news agency Efe. "Moreover, this lifestyle has become a true revolution that is attracting more people and is an alternative that is healthier for the planet and for humankind."

The ad was shot in New York this week by top celebrity and fashion photographer Gavin Bond—look for it this fall.
